Date: 9/3/17 5:21 am From: Kathy Van Der Aue via CTBirds <ctbirds...> Subject: [CT Birds] Banded this past week at Birdcraft
I apologize for the delayed report but I know our new Executive Director Patrick Comins got the word out immediately on the "treasures." We banded 70 birds:
Warblers: American Redstart, Chestnut-sided, Blue-winged, Magnolia, Common Yellowthroat, Black and White, Mourning, Yellow and Ovenbird.
Flycatchers: Yellow-bellied and Willow
Others: Carolin Wren, Veery, Gray Catbird, Northern Cardinal, Hairy Woodpecker, American Robin, and Yellow-shafted Flicker.
Several RT Hummers were also released from the nets and sent on their way.
Birdcraft is at 314 Unquowa Road, Fairfield. Due to persistent vandalism we have been forced to put a combination lock on the gate. If you want to get in before the office opens call Patrick ahead of time for the combination at (203) 259-0416 x 107. Bird Banders are there early Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (fair weather only) and will open the gate.
